Give your favour boxes a star makeover with this sweet-as-can-be DIY idea.
Using a stencil, cut out two pentagon shapes connected by a middle fold, remembering to leave flaps around one pentagon. Fold in the flaps. Apply glue to three of them and stick the two halves together. Leave to dry. Use the scalpel to score a star shape on both sides (being careful not to cut through). Push in the sides of each to create a box. Fill with sweets. Use different coloured paper for a contrasting effect.
